Coding

Curriculum is designed to allow young students (K-3) to develop their creative storytelling abilities and give the opportunity to bring stories to life through game design using Scratch and Python.  At the beginning of each session students brainstorm with creative ideas for games, characters, or animations.  Through this, we hope to introduce children to programming in a creative, fun, collaborative, and innovative way!
